Whoa, Church’s Chicken is Muslim-owned!?

I thought Islam was against artificial sterilization! :-). :-) :-)

Apparently it may no longer be halal (although I suspect some restaurants were bought by observant muslims and may still operate that way http://www.zabihah.com/d/Houston+17856+Churchs-Chicken/)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church’s_Chicken

Church’s was owned by AFC Enterprises, along with Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits and Cinnabon, through the end of 2004, when it was sold to Arcapita (formerly Crescent Capital Investments). Because Arcapita is an Islamic venture capital firm, pork products were removed from the menu after the sale (as pork is not halal) in 2005.[5][6] Also, American Church’s Chicken restaurants switched beverage products to Coca-Cola, while still retaining the Pepsi contract in Canada.

...On August 10, 2009, San Francisco private equity firm Friedman Fleischer & Lowe bought Church’s Chicken from Arcapita.[7]

In some areas, Church’s is co-franchised with the White Castle hamburger chain.[8] In Canada, Church’s Chicken items were once available in Harvey’s restaurants, but the co-venture was discontinued.
